Research Interests
BCMS Honours Topic: "Improving security of Facebook sharing."

Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world. With the current Facebook security, it seems sharing information over Facebook is completely safe. However, since our information is stored in the database of Facebook, it is exposed to the Facebook employees.

My project is to create a browser extension that automatically encrypts information with a key before sharing it over Facebook. Only the people who have the key to that particular information can view its original form. Even the creator of this software will not have the ability to retrieve the information, because the keys are generated by the users themselves using the key sharing technology.
